This goofy rhetoric sounds familiar

Newspaper columnist Dana Milbank sounds like the auto industry executives bemoaning the end of the world as we know it without bailouts to return them to the lifestyles to which they had grown accustomed.

The idea that scrutiny of government would die without newspapers is a figment of some newspaper guy's imagination.

And besides, Kentucky already has a long (and silly) history of bailing out newspapers.
